The 7 Triggers to Yes

Amplify with Influence

Conventional selling models are silent on how to persuade because they focus on a customer path defined by the seller. Trigger training turns more prospects into customers with a focus on the buyer decision path.

The good news: Your selling process and the persuasion equation are complementary. Any sales model can become an influence engine by amplifying points along the process with the tactics of persuasive communication.

This is typically a one-day on-site workshop, facilitated by a certified 7 Triggers trainer, with a variety of follow-up and follow-on options including a coaching playbook and device-delivered interactive micro-burst programming.
